Once in a while, right in the middle of ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.

To dream …
To make a wish ….
To have ‘once upon a time’ be today !
At Couleurs de Géraldine , our goal is for each woman to step into her very own fairy tale when she puts on our jewelry.
Fairy tales might not come true, but they surely inspire reality at Couleurs de Géraldine . Whether a memory – tucked tight into my childhood bed and hearing the words of ‘The Emperor and the Nightingale’ read to me by Maman, Papa or my big sisters – or the image of a magic wand reflected by our In Vogue earrings, ‘sprookjes’ are an important source of inspiration at CdG.
“My excellent little nightingale,” said the courtier, “I have the great pleasure of inviting you to a court festival this evening, where you will gain imperial favor by your charming song.”…. The palace was elegantly decorated for the occasion. The walls and floors of porcelain glittered in the light of a thousand lamps … In the centre of the great hall, a golden perch had been fixed for the nightingale to sit on. … All were in full dress, and every eye was turned to the little gray bird when the emperor nodded to her to begin. The nightingale sang so sweetly that the tears came into the emperor’s eyes, and then rolled down his cheeks, as her song became still more touching and went to every one’s heart. The emperor was so delighted that he declared the nightingale should have his gold slipper to wear round her neck, but she declined the honor with thanks: she had been sufficiently rewarded already. “I have seen tears in an emperor’s eyes,” she said, “that is my richest reward. An emperor’s tears have wonderful power, and are quite sufficient honor for me;” and then she sang again more enchantingly than ever.
